A project I have always wanted to try is to paint one of my sets of stairs with something different and unique:
I had no trouble convincing my husband of my idea, even though is not always crazy about all of my painting ventures.
I showed him a picture on Pinterest and he agreed it was a great idea:
I needed to select another color that would work well with my top green wall and also Ben Moore’s AF-575 Instinct, which will soon be painted on a nearby wall:
I choose Ben Moore’s color strip # 090. The only problem was that there are eight stairs to paint and the paint strip only has seven colors:
I did not want the color to go any lighter or darker than the strip, so I choose In The Twilight # 1434 which color falls right between Irises and Amethyst Shadow:
I bought the smallest size available which is a pint. The paint store told me the small pints only come in a flat or eggshell finish. I thought I was going to do the stairs in semi gloss, but I am so glad now because I love the non-shine look of the ombre!:
That was my fun weekend project! How about you? Are you working on any decorating or painting projects right now?
